My sable has 240000 miles. noise coming from water pump. should i replace timing belt also?

If the original Timing Belt is still in the vehicle it is certainly due for a change. The noise is most likely the water pump but if you have the area open already and the time to do the job I would replace the timing chain while I was in the area and had it apart.

99 Mercury Mountaineer will not start on 1st or 2nd attempt.

Ever have the fuel pump replaced ? Classic symptom of long crank time ,the check valve in the fuel pump module is bad . Hooking up a fuel pressure gauge to check for fuel pressure bleed off . Fuel bleeds back into the tank. Try spraying carb. cleaner into the throttle an see if it starts sooner ! I would imagine you don't have a fuel pressure gauge to test it the correct way .
Here are Some Tricks to Diagnose Car That Cranks Too Long Before it Starts

Brakes on 2000 Mercury Moutaineer wont stay

There Has To Be Air Getting In The Line Somewhere Keep Depressing it And Adding Brake Fluid. Make Sure That When You Bleed The Brakes You Have 2 People 1 Pushing The Brake 1,2,3 Hold And The Other Is By The Bleed Off. Heres The Job For The Second Person They Should Have A Clear Jar Half Full With Brake Fluid And A Hose Comming From The Bleed Valve And The Ither End Should Be Sitting In The Jar In The Brake Fluid. Before The Person Holding The Brakes Releases Tighten The Valve And Then Release The Brakes. Pump, 1,2,3, Then Open The Valve Again To See If Any Air Bubbles Are Visible Coming From The End Of The Hose In The Brake Fluid If So Much As 1 Is Visible Repeat Again. Once Finished Move On To The Other Side. You May Have To Do All 4 Valves One On Every Brake.
